Tim Moore: When the prophet Habakkuk prayed that God would send a wakeup call to His people, the Lord responded: “Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your days — you would not believe if you were told” (Hab. 1:5).
Today, we too can look at the nations and observe and be astonished at how God is moving. The forces of evil are on the march! So, let’s look at some examples of what’s going on in the world as of late that have prophetic implications.
Kings of the East
Nathan Jones: We’re witnessing the ongoing movement prophetically towards the formation of the Gog-Magog coalition as described in Ezekiel 38-39. Russia’s Putin, Erdogan in Turkey, and the leadership of Iran have been making great strides in forming this coalition. They’ve been working together more often in joint ventures where once these nations used to be enemies.

It’s interesting that when we read from Bible prophecy, such as in the book of Daniel, how in the end times the Bible describes the rise of kings, and in particular, the Ten Kings. In modern-day terms, Putin is basically the Czar of Russia as he’s been made president for life. Then there’s China adding to the geopolitical mix as Xi Jinping has also been made president for life. He actually had the last head of the Communist party escorted out of session while he ascended. Both of these men rule essentially as kings.
Kings of the West
Nathan Jones: So many democracies are giving way to Socialism, and the Communist countries are giving way to kings to lead them. This move away from democracies to sovereign elects appears to be the trend that’s happening more and more, even in the West. Western elites try to pull greater power to themselves as the World Economic Forum rules behind the scenes, and increasingly more often than not, right out in front.
Tim Moore: On both of these movements, let’s look at Brazil. Brazil stands as the largest and richest country in South America. This nation recently moved from a conservative president to one that is considered very socialistic, as Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva is committed to the same kind of Marxism that has destroyed Venezuela. So, we can expect more upheaval within that very large and powerful nation in South America.
And, yet another extreme, we witnessed the shortest-lived British prime minister, at least in modern history. Liz Truss lasted only a matter of days before she resigned and was replaced by a new prime minister, Rishi Sunak, who had been Britain’s Chief of the Exchequer. That powerful post lends itself to implementing the WEF’s Great Reset, which is the globalists’ economic agenda. Expect Sunak to be beholden to the banks and to other creditors who hold vast amounts of the United Kingdom’s debt.
Nathan Jones: We’ve also recently saw a major world player — Queen Elizabeth — passing from the scene due to her death. Her son, the now King Charles, has at last risen to the throne. King Charles is a major globalist player whose vast fortune is simply unbelievable. Some estimate that he potentially, through his new position, owns a sixth of all the land on the planet!
Kings of the Middle East
Tim Moore: There’s yet another massive political shift that’s been largely ignored by the American Media, and that is a change of government in Israel.
Nathan Jones: Yes, one of the bright spots in politics is that Bibi Netanyahu has won back his prime ministership. If he can keep his coalition together, politics in Israel will take a right turn. After five elections in four years, the Israelis are very tired of having to run back to the election booths. The fragility of the Israeli government shows how weak its system is.
Biblically, that system of government via the Knesset will one day also be replaced by a king — Jesus Christ. The Messiah will return to rule and reign as king over Israel and over the entire world, and His kingdom will be headquartered in Jerusalem. So, Israel’s current weak system of government will inevitably fall apart and likewise be replaced by a king — the King of Kings.
Nathan Jones: We’ve also have some interesting players dissenting against the globalist agenda. The new Prime Minister of Italy, Giorgia Meloni, has been calling out the rising globalism that we’re all warily watching. Even Putin himself, who is no hero of the globalist cause as he’s purely a nationalist, has been striving against the tide of globalism rising in the West.
Tim Moore: If Vladimir Putin continues his push-back against the globalist’s economic agenda, the West is going to repudiate him, causing western society to embrace globalism even more fully. And that leads to yet another major political event brewing, as the nationalistic Trump, also a dissenter to globalism, has announced he will be running for U.S. president in 2024.
Nathan Jones: Instituting a global government requires certain catastrophic disasters. The globalists tried with COVID, and for the most part, failed. I believe the ultimate disasters — the Rapture of the Church and a subsequent worldwide economic collapse — will likely be the key events that will push the world into totally accepting globalism.
This sharp rise in globalism, as prophesied in the Bible, reveals that eventually, the world will fall under the reign of ten kings who will create a global empire under which one supreme ruler will emerge — the Antichrist.
The King of Kings
Tim Moore: The Lord said in Psalm 2 that the nations are in an uproar and the peoples of the earth devise a vain thing. The kings of the Earth take their stand and the rulers take counsel against the Lord and against His anointed. We see what’s been happening already with all of these various kings rising up in the nations. These ascending kings have rejected any kind of allegiance to God nor show any respect for His moral law.
Even the leaders of this country — the United States of America — have increasingly been rejecting any kind of allegiance to the principles handed down in Scripture, which is why they now embrace abortion, transgenderism, and gender confusion. They cannot even define what a man or woman is, let alone explain traditional marriage. Our country has rejected God and His Anointed and our society now openly flaunts our wickedness.
Nathan Jones: Jesus revealed in Matthew 24 and Luke 21 that one of the major signs of the end times that He said would point to His soon return would be an increase in fearful events socially, politically, and economically. And what have we been seeing? An increase in fearful events socially, politically, and economically, and they’ve been happening all across the world.
China’s economy is supposedly about to collapse. We’re seeing the United States about to lose the Dollar as the world’s fiat currency as we go bankrupt due to Congress’ out-of-control spending. We just saw the FTX cryptocurrency collapse due to corruption. These are all fearful events that call to attention our need for a solid foundation.
Our firm foundation does not rest on any social, political, or economic system that this world creates. The only way that we can be safe and secure and stand on solid ground is when we put our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. He is the true foundation that gives us firmness and calmness in a sea of pandemonium.
